At Westfield, we know our centres are more than just shopping hubs. They are lifestyle destinations where people come to connect, share and inform.
We cultivate spaces that are inclusive and welcoming, which our communities are proud to call their own; and we contribute to the social wellbeing and cohesion of our local regions through a number of programs and services. It is through this commitment that we deliver our purpose of creating extraordinary places, connecting and enriching communities.
Westfield Local Heroes
Thank you for your vote
We congratulate all of our finalists and recognise the important contribution they make to the local community.
Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the outcome of the public vote determining the three successful 2019 nominees for every Westfield centre. Each of the affiliated organisations of the successful heroes will be awarded a $10,000 grant to support their work to thrive. Westfield will award 120 grants across Australia and New Zealand – totalling $1.2 million.
The successful Westfield Local Heroes will be announced here on 1 October.
We work closely with key local organisations, groups and individuals to discover, celebrate and contribute to those things that are relevant and meaningful to the local community. We also invite customer and community insights via face-to-face, phone and digital channels.
At Westfield, we work with our community partners to encourage, respect and understand our community's needs through experience, by recognising and helping to resolve issues, in order for us to become recognised as an essential and integral part of the community.
Our community partners include:
• Woden Police Station
• ACT City Services
• Woden Community Services
Contributing to our local communities
We provide a dedicated space in all Westfield centres for community-focused groups (i.e. not-for-profit sports groups, community groups, charities and welfare organisations) to connect with people in the local area.
And our staff are passionate about giving back and we support them to do this in a variety of ways through Workplace Giving and Volunteering. For more information on any of our programs or services, please contact us
